If any one other than Hazaribag knows of triangles in megaliths please let me know. These
triangles face hills or any cardinal points. If the megaliths of Hazaribag were Mundaric in origin as the Mundas resided in
here prior to their migration to Ranchi, then megalithism has changed amidst them as they do not make any megaliths in the
likes of Hazaribag .
The Ranchi menhirs which are primarily Mundaric and the ones of Ho are more straight placed and I haven’t seen
any stone circles there. The only stone circle I have discovered in Jharkhand is in Banadag.
AS ASTROLOGICAL AND MATHEMATICAL MODELS:
My sites have been visited by numerous
scholars, professional archaeologists, even tourists (Jharkhand Tourism has eventually paid heed to my requests and has put megaliths in their publicity brochures: a
rare feat indeed. Megaliths today in Jharkhand perhaps for the first time in the country has
been featured as major tourists spots – thanks to our relentless propaganda of megaliths since many years now) Strangely unlike the European and the British archaeologists, their India counterparts
denies to associate megaliths with astronomy.
But my researches have perceived that many megaliths like that of Punkree Burwadih is a creation of precise planning and this can be observed in the manner the
menhirs are placed and positioned in alignment to the prominent peaks of the encircling mountains. The process of the linear
positioning of the menhirs in this complex along with the ratio of the placement of the stones discloses acute mathematics
and precise engineering.
PREVAILING MOTHER GODDESS CULT:
were temples of the tribals who raised the stone structures to honour the glory of the Great Goddesses of the matriarchal
society of the prehistoric world during Neolithic, Chalcolithic and Iron Age times. Primitive Indian society worshipped the
now forgotten Goddesses of both Ur and
Wer who in the more recent years have been amalgamated
and have been converted into Urwer, the Goddess of fertility. However
in South India Ur in the olden days was a village assembly for people of
The prevailing primitive tribal
society worshipped the Recumbent Mother Goddess. The most popular form of the image of this goddess is mountains or hills
of a specific form where in the centre there would be a bulge resembling the fertile pregnant belly. Information of small
images of pregnant Mother Goddesses has been received from all over the world. India is surprisingly no exception. In India small Mother Goddess images have found from Chirand in Bihar, Jorwe in Maharastra. I have seen one such small idol
in a private collection in my hometown of Hazaribag here in Jharkhand. It was believed to have been found in Godda, in Jharkhand.
Life sized recumbent images
of such Goddesses have been discovered from Kajur, Goa
etc. I have discovered the more primitive ones in and around Hazaribag. One
such Goddess is carved from a big chunk of granite giving faint but significant touches to bring out the form. The key feature
of the image is the vulva crafted out of a natural fissure in the rock. The ‘yoni’ of the recumbent goddess has
been crafted so marvellously from the natural crack that it is stunningly lifelike comparable only to the real one.
The first megaliths were therefore the temples of the archaic times of the mother tribes when the tribal world was
purely matriarchal. The sky father and the earth mother concept were very strong then. The concept is still formidable in
hunter gathers tribes refrain from agriculture as they believe that this would pain the mother earth.
There are festivals in India among the tribes of Jharkhand who celebrate Sarhul when the Sal (Shorea
Robusta) trees blossom. The prevalent belief is that this indicates that the mother
earth is menstruating as she is fertile now.
Another festival among the Hindus is the festival of the Ambabuchi which
occurs a day after the mid summer sunrise. The festival is of the Goddess at Kamakhya in Guwahati, Assam represented by the vulva of the deity, becoming fertile as she menstruates. Therefore all over eastern India the farmers
would not plough the land for three days nor would they drop anything heavy on the ground as they feel that this would pain
the Mother earth as she is menstruating.
All these are remains of the widespread Mother Goddess religion prevalent during antiquity
when the world was matriarchal.
A megalithic temple therefore was an accessory of this wide prevalent Mother Goddess cult.
